in chicago just hours after barack obama's re-elected. it shows the leader of the free world as i have never seen him, you probably haven't seen him either. raw, exhausted and reduced to open tears by the efforts of his young campaign workers. and by the thought of what he himself has accomplished. it's one of those things you've got to watch in its entirety. here it is, arguably barack obama's finest ever speech. >> i try to picture myself when i was your age and i first moved to chicago at the age of 25, and i had this vague inkling about making a difference. i didn't really know how to do it. i didn't have a structure. and there wasn't a presidential campaign at the time that i could attach myself to. ronald reagan had just been re-elected and was incredibly popular and so i came to chicago knowing that somehow, i wanted to make sure that my life attached itself to helping kids get a great education or helping people living in poverty to get decent jobs and be able to work and have daybreak. to make sure that people didn't have to go to the emergency room to get health care. an

, drove large numbers of voters away from them. and then on economics which is central to this election, they have a theory that frankly was not a popular theory in the country, which is that if we go back to tax cuts for the wealthy, that would profit everyone. and then for romney himself, there were specific things that he did. i think the decision in the final week to try to litigate the auto bailout again in ohio had a tremendously negative impact there. and perhaps beyond ohio. so, you know, in the final analysis, there are a lot of factors here, but in the short-term that was a bad decision in my view. >> people are looking at what happened and saying that the senate remains with the democrats and the house remains with the republicans. how can we expect the washington machine that many see as being fractured if not paralyzed to regenerate itself and get stuff done. speaker boehner has come out and said, mr. president, let's get some stuff going here. how much of the responsibility lays with him and speaker boehner? >> people want cooperation on both sides. the issue at hand will

president obama's re-election. big questions tonight. what did the white house know and when did it know it. the four-star general has said to be devastated about the scandal, sparked by his affair with his biographer, paula broadwell, uncovered during an fbi investigation. the bureau was looking into so-called jealous e-mails purchase reportedly send by broadwell to kelley, a petraeus family friend. tonight, the "washington post" has reported that as president obama rearranges his national security team, it is considering asking senator john kerry to serve on the team and the fbi agent was barred from taking part in the case for allegedly sending shirtless pictures of himself to a woman involved in the case. meanwhile, the ghost writer of broadwell's book, vernon loeb, says he was clueless about the affair between petraeus and broadwell. here with the latest on the scandal that keeps getting bigger and more bizarre, cnn's pentagon correspondent barbara starr and intelligence correspondent, suzanne kelly. welcome back to you both. >> thank you. >> when we talked on friday night, it

concluded before the election, but the news was only imparted after the election, and now that obviously lends itself immediately to conspiracy theorists, and why wouldn't they have gone straight to the white house the moment they knew that the investigation was concluded? >> well, i am not sure i understand what conspiracy you may be thinking about, but it seems to be justified to go to the white house quickly and early and promptly if there are issues of national security and migs compromised and clandestine activities undermined or if there is a compromise of the national security information or national secrets, or alternatively, you would go to the white house if the president had to make a policy decision that would influence the outcome of the investigation. none of those circumstances were here, piers. this was an investigation of a bunch of e-mails, and the allegation was not that anybody was involved in spying or espionage, and the allegation had to do with the private activity. >> unless the classified documents that now appear to be on the computer turn out to be highly sensi

the fbi go to james clapper, the director of national intelligence, on the night of the election. so maybe the president will put some of those things to rest tomorrow. but the fbi really hasn't come out and said much at all so a lot of the information that's been coming out about this case has been through leaks and anonymous sources. >> i think the reason the fbi is not saying anything is because this is going to be deeply embarrassing when we get to the bottom of it. thank you both very much. >>> i want to turn to a member of general petraeus' inner circle, his former spokesman, colonel steve boylan. colonel, thank you for joining me. when did you last speak to david petraeus? >> i spoke with him last night and we exchanged some correspondence this morning. >> how would you describe his state of mind? >> well, i think his state of mind is fine. i would suggest, though, that he is very well aware of everything that's going on, how much hurt he has caused his family, the implications of him resigning and the poor judgment and decisions that he made that led to this. >> colonel,

administration knew about this before the election? >> no, but wouldn't we all love to know the answer to that. that really is a burning question. just days after the election, something like this comes out. clearly something like this had been going on for a while. well, it actually meant he was having sex with her under the desk, but the fbi thought it might refer to corruption. in other words, doing something under the table. and that's how this investigation started. the fbi then went back and traced all of his e-mails and ascertained that he was having this affair with this woman, and of course that is a total violation of top secret security rules. you are not supposed to compromise yourself in any way where you could be blackmailed, especially the cia director. there is almost nobody in the government who knows as many secrets as he does, and people are routinely fired for putting themselves in this position when they have a top secret security clearance. what was even worse is that the fbi found that she broke up with him several months ago, and he continued to pursue her, sending thou

employee, but, in fact, the white house said no, we want to wait until after the election. so agents were furious. i've been given insight to the actual agents that were doing the case, and they think it's inexcusable that this was allowed to continue for months without firing him. >> let me just jump in there, ronald. obviously, this is all your independent claims and reporting. we've been unable to corroborate this in the time scale we've had tonight but you do have very good fbi sources. i want to turn to bob baer. he's the cnn contributor. does this make sense to you that this could be the sequence of events? >> oh, absolutely, but i tend to attribute more significance to the fbi of getting into petraeus' e-mails. the fbi, as a matter of course, doesn't look at affairs, doesn't read military officers' e-mails or cia officers. they have to be alerted to some sort of crime or counterintelligence problem. i can only speculate what that would be. maybe it was something in the book that broadwell wrote. there was some classified information. it could have been other leaks to the press
